Defamation

We are experts on defamation and privacy law, including slander and libel, and have successfully taken cases to the High Court.

Both libel and slander concern the publication of defamatory material (something that adversely affects a person’s reputation). The distinction between the two is that libel concerns ‘lasting’ forms of publication such as print, online or broadcast, whereas slander concerns more transient forms such as spoken words or gestures.

We can act quickly to protect an individual’s reputation and we recently successfully concluded a High Court defamation action.
